Change in Medicaid Transportation Release Date: December 21, 2010
Change in Medicaid Transportation
As of January 1, 2011, all Medicaid transportation will be scheduled by LogistiCare Solutions.
As of January 1, 2011, transportation scheduling for all Medicaid medical appointments will be handled by LogistiCare Solutions, LLC. The State Department of Human Services has contracted with LogistiCare to act as statewide broker for all Medicaid medical transportation.
What this means to Medicaid recipients in Sussex County is that instead of calling Sussex County Skylands Ride to schedule a ride to a medical appointment, recipients will call LogistiCare. Sussex County Medicaid recipients should ask that Sussex County Skylands Ride be their preferred transportation provider when they contact LogistiCare.
This change in procedure is for Medicaid recipients only, and does not affect any other current Skylands Ride customers.
Medicaid recipients should call LogistiCare at least two business days in advance at 1-866-527-9933 to schedule medical trips.
